Hi I have a 05 focus 1.6 tdci and it has developed an oil leak around the injectors. I have changed the injector seals and the oil seals on the four injectors but there still seems to be a leak .. Any advice would be appreciated thanks!

Hi markdon, are you sure it's oil? Could it be diesel?

Thanks for the reply .. Ya I'm positive its oil. There was no chuffing when I noticed the leak and the injectors had no trace of carbon when I pulled them out. On close inspection it still seems to be the oil seal that is not doing it's job ! Is it possible for oil to escape from the injector bolts ?
